STEM Exploration Series

The Center for Educational Outreach works in partnership with JHU and community based organizations to offer an opportunity for Barclay students and families to explore a variety of STEM fields.  Participants work directly with faculty, staff, graduate students, and community scientists as they learn about a science and engineering field through a series of hands-on, meaningful tasks.  The STEM Exploration Series for the 2017-2018 school year include:

 

  • Explore Reactions! – Fall, 2017
